Rutundu Wildlife Hideaway By Helicopter From Lewa

No electricity. No phone signal. No distraction from the natural beauty of the northern slopes of Mount Kenya – the country’s highest peak – or the secluded lakeside location.

A true escape from the modern world, this hideaway consists of two simple log cabins that emphasise their wilderness location. Fill your days relaxing, walking, fishing or horse riding. Spend your evenings watching the sun sink over the waters of Lake Rutundu before enjoying the warmth and crackle of the open fires.

This is a romantic retreat with royal approval – Britain’s Prince William is said to have proposed to Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, here. A helicopter journey from Lewa that is just the start of a spectacular getaway.
